Proper shooting technique is such a difficult thing to explain, especially since there is truly more than one "correct" way to do it. If I were to recommend one (former) NHL player to try to emulate for wrist shots, it would be Joe Sakic. He's not a very big guy by NHL standards, but has a laser for a shot. If you watch video of him, you'll see how much he leans over/forward to load up. This is the weight transfer I was referring to.
